Welcome to Rochambeau High School !
Rochambeau students integrate multilingual mastery with a multicultural understanding of the world.
During the three high school years, from 10th through 12th grade, instruction and assessment are in both French and English, and students also study between one and three additional languages.
The French system of education forms the cornerstone of our academic approach. We enhance this through options and electives developed to meet the needs of our American, French and international communities. High school studies culminate with the award of the U.S. High School Diploma, in addition to the world-renowned French Baccalaureate exam.
Rochambeau students receive a comprehensive education of the highest quality, instilling in them the confidence and desire for excellence they need to fulfill their dreams and become caring, valued members of a global society.
Cycles of learning
The three years of Rochambeau high school are unified into one cycle, divided into two distinct learning stages:
The “Determination” stage (10th grade) is designed to enable students to consolidate and broaden their mastery of the common core of knowledge, skills and culture in order to make a successful transition from Middle to High School. It prepares them to determine their choice of a path within the terminal stage up to the baccalaureate with a view to successful pursuit of higher education and, beyond that, their professional integration.
The “Terminal” stage (11th and 12th grades)
In the final stage, in addition to the common courses, students follow compulsory speciality courses of their choice. These courses allow students to gradually acquire skills and knowledge adapted to their future choices of pursuing higher education.
